Well, I have cast on my first hand spun knitting project, an Estonian scarf. It only has 32 stitches. Do you think that is too much? Let’s hope not. I intend to knit in pattern as long as I can until I have to stop. I also will need to knit the other edging and graft it to the opposite end of the scarf, as it is knit from the bottom up. This pattern is called Kahekordne Hagakiri or Double Twig, from ‘Knitted Lace of Estonia‘ by Nancy Bush. So many wonderful patterns in this book. If you love knitting lace, it is a must-have. There are stitch patterns and edgings in the back of the book intended for using to create patterns, so that’s what I am doing here. I think it will work out nicely:)
Now, regarding the socks, I am making progress here, too. I now have a list of modification suggestions from my test knitters, and are waiting from anything else they may come up with. I spent a little time working out the numbers for an alternate heel for the large size. It comes out lumpy, as is. Still plenty of work to do.
